CAPTURE AND CELEBRATE THIS WONDROUS TIME OF CONNECTION AND DISCOVERY
Our Time encourages toddlers to uncover an engaging musical world while building confidence, self-control, and communications skills. Singing, imitating sounds, rhyming, and object identification foster language skills. Creative movement to music develops a sense of balance, timing, and spatial awareness. Listening and turn-taking encourage blossoming social skills.
Our Time reflects the emotional foundations of school readiness and the latest research on music and early childhood development. Our Time is a unique opportunity for parent and child to interact and learn together in an unhurried and joyful manner.
SPRING 2015 Curriculum:
Fiddle Dee Dee: We'll meet many animal characters in our books, activities, and songs—each specifically
chosen for a toddler's emerging interests and physical skills. With silly, bumpy lap
bounces we'll help toddlers develop rhythm while further developing their ever-emerging
language skills. With a special stringed instrument emphasis in the music from class,
parents can bring home the violin, cello, and orchestra sounds to help their toddlers
stay happy and engaged learners at home, too.
Home Materials: Double CD featuring songs from class; two interactive storybooks—This Little Piggy Played the Fiddle and Animal Serenade to develop early literacy skills; Home Activity Book, and a pair of Fiddlestick instruments. (Note: A Term or B Term only students do not receive all of the home materials.)
